Reproducing the Issue

  • Job Profiles:

Please note that moving a Family from a Job Profile Template to another will not impact the Job Profiles associated to it. The change will only apply to new Job Profiles associated to that Family .

  • Job Requisitions:

As the Job Requisition is like a "snapshot" of the information that exists in the associated Job Profile, by the time the Job Requisition is created, these changes will not impact any Job Profile setup on any existing Job Requisition.


  1. Go to "Manage Job Profile Import/Export";
  2. From the "Download Data Import File Template" drop-down list select "Job Template-Assigned Families";
  3. In the Confirmation pop-up hit "Yes";
  4. Go to "Monitor Job";
  5. Download the exported file and open it;
  6. Then, find the Family that you want to move from a Job Profile Template to another by looking for its GUID;
